Boulevard-Riverside Chapels Funeral Home Outbuilding: Hewlett, NY
Architect: Peter Caradonna Architecture and Planning
Role: Schematic Design
An accessory structure to house overflow visitors during funeral services. As a requirement the building had to be compact in size to fit in the site within existing setbacks without negatively impacting the existing parking lot and landscaped area. Additionally, a very tight budget kept the design simple and compact. The space includes lighting, a uni-sex bathroom, and a small heat pump to condition the space. Additionally, windows and overhangs are sized and placed to optimize daylighting and passive heating and cooling.
